Pumpkin and Orange Soup

Pumpkin and Orange Soup recipe.

Moisten your lips and dive into something smooth.

Roasted pumpkin with citrus orange, onion and garlic infused with licoricey tarragon; Pumpkin and Orange Soup.

This dish will topple any belief that vegan food can’t be super nourishing.

Make this:

  • When its f**king freezing outside and you need a nourishing creamy broth to warm you up
  • When you’ve had a hard day at work and need a lift me up wholesome soup
  • When time is of the essence and you have a starter to quickly rustle up for your dinner party

Pumpkin and Orange Soup was inspired when stumbling upon a quaint grocery shop in Shoreditch with my housemate, Rin.  Laden with pumpkins and oranges and tarragon, I made my purchase.  Back home, I dished up some soup for us and it was lush.

Pumpkin and Orange Soup is vegan and paleo.
